The presidential election: Going, going, ... Still going. No matter what a candidate tells us, the election for president is ongoing. Some battleground states are still on the table and mail-in ballots could delay a result in the presidential race. As of Wednesday morning, we're standing by for key results from Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Ref. USAToday.
President Trump's campaign files a request with the US Supreme Court to overturn Pennsylvania's extended vote counting deadline. President Donald Trump’s campaign on Wednesday filed a request with the Supreme Court of the United States to intervene and overturn a Pennsylvania court ruling allowing election officials to count ballots received up to three days after the election. The Supreme Court had let the deadline stand in a ruling last week but left the door open to hearing a challenge if the state proved to be pivotal in the election. Ref. USAToday.
Even though they're still counting mail in ballots it looks like Biden and Kamala have won this election. The early vote made the difference.

Biden takes lead in Pennsylvania and pulled ahead in Georgia overnight; either state would give him the 270 electoral votes to win election. Former Vice President Joe Biden edged ahead of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania for the first time Friday after ballots in Philadelphia were counted. Trump cannot win reelection without the Keystone State. In Georgia, Biden passed Trump overnight as legal mail-in ballots from Democratic-leaning counties were counted. If Biden wins either state, it would put him over the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to win the presidency. Ref. USAToday.
Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States, ending a contentious campaign as he defeats incumbent President Donald Trump. In his third try for the White House, Joe Biden outlasted a historically large Democratic primary field and a contentious general election to become the nation’s next president. Biden’s victory puts the nation on a sharply different course just four years after U.S. Voters selected one of the most unconventional leaders in American history to shake up establishment politics.
